TV show naming conventions
#1
What are the naming conventions for TV Shows? As of now, I have Futurama and Archer in there, and they both are named the same (ie. Futurama 1x01), and those show up in the library no problem. For some reason however, Archer isn't working out for me. It shows 6 episodes form Season 1, and their names don't match any of the episodes in any season, but the episodes do play. It's odd

In cases where you get odd episode names, or only partial seasons, it's always worth checking tvdb.com to make sure there isn't another series with the same name.

In the case of Archer, you want to be calling the series "Archer (2009)", to distinguish it from some earlier detective series

Ah yes forgot that.

And if you have multi episode files:
S01E01E02 and so on

Worth noting too that maybe it picked up the wrong Archer. I get this with a few shows like Castle, you'll need to go into the show details and tell it to refresh, should give you a choice of what show it is if there are multiples.

It's interesting, i renamed all the Archer episodes to Archer (2009) 1x01 and so on. It's still picking up the older Archer series.

The series folder needs to be named "Archer (2009)" - the filenames just need season and episode numbers.

Thanks

I get the right banner / poster but the wrong year and date.

Is it ok to have the old episodes in one folder on another device and the new ones on another device and folder?

Not sure, I seem to recall that such functionality (one TV show spread over multiple paths) was once there but got kicked because of its ugliness (code wise) and therefore increased difficulties to maintain.

Thanks, will move it all then. It's on an old slowish usb drive so it'll take the whole tomorrow to move it.
